Coffee: Is it good or bad? The world can never decide. Personally, I don’t trust anyone who doesn’t drink coffee. Totally kidding, but I think coffee is a delicious treat.

That dream can be your reality. I’m serious. And I’m here to tell you how.
My husband and I decided that we wanted to marry young. Him at 24 and me at 21.
